Comment on "Does Ruby on Rails Scale?"
by Kay Roepke — Feb 06
Scaling will mean someone halfway around the world plugging a standard shipping container full of equipment a handful of wall-outlets...

Bold statement or not, I don't think that approach will lead to anywhere, sorry. Scaling is one thing, efficiency is another. If you just throw hardware at problems, the thing will not perform. Programming is about tradeoffs but as energy prices are rising (and that's what they'll keep doing, at an increasing rate) using less computing power for the same output is a competitive advantage...
